Human skull found in Mojave Desert
The two explorers found the remains in a wash near Newberry and Stem roads in Newberry Springs, said San Bernardino County sheriff's spokeswoman Jodi Miller.
They alerted deputies who arrived and discovered arm bones nearby, she said.
The area where the remains were found is extremely remote and likely does not get many visitors, Miller said.
The coroner’s office is conducting an investigation to identify the person, cause of death and whether the remains might have been in the area for a prolonged period of time.
